  • Click on Hardware and Devices and follow the onscreen instructions. Method 2: Update the USB drivers from device manager: a) Press Windows Key + R, type devmgmt.msc and hit Enter. B) Expand Universal Serial Bus controllers, right click on the device driver and click on Update Driver Software and follow the on-screen instructions.
  • This utility installs a USB driver for connecting a camera, camcorder or Memory StickĀ® device to a computer and transferring files.

Getting Windows images. There is currently only one legal way of obtaining Windows 10 ARM64 images: download the UUP files directly from Microsoft servers, and build an ISO from them. There are two websites that can do that for you: UUPDump or uup.rg-adguard.net Full desktop builds of Windows 10 ARM32 are not available anywhere (except for a leak, but please read the warning below before. This article explains the creation process of a Linux kernel device driver for an undocumented USB device. After having reverse-engineered the USB communication protocol, I present the architecture of the USB device driver. In addition to the kernel driver I introduce a simple user-space tool that can be used to control the device.

Feb 21, 2011: Updated windows client driver to allow x64 operation. We have received signed versions from the ReactOS project. (This is needed to allow installation without workarounds on Win7/Vista x64.) ReactOS has the proper code signing certificate and offer its use to other open source projects React OS Driver Signing. Great initiative!

Devices

Jul 10, 2009: The preview release of usbip windows client is now available. See screenshots!

Jan 13, 2009: The latest drivers were recently included in the staging tree of Linux.

The USB/IP Project aims to develop a general USB device sharing system over IP network. To share USB devices between computers with their full functionality, USB/IP encapsulates 'USB I/O messages' into TCP/IP payloads and transmits them between computers. Original USB device drivers and applications can be also used for remote USB devices without any modification of them. A computer can use remote USB devices as if they were directly attached; for example, we can ...

  • USB storage devices: fdisk, mkfs, mount/umount, file operations, play a DVD movie and record a DVD-R media.
  • USB keyboards and USB mice: use with linux console and X Window System.
  • USB webcams and USB speakers: view webcam, capture image data and play some music.
  • USB printers, USB scanners, USB serial converters and USB Ethernet interfaces: ok, work fine.
Project

It is currently implemented as Linux device drivers and available under the open source license GPL. Its I/O performance is enough practical in local area network for all types of devices, including isochronous devices, without any modification of Linux-original USB device drivers.

Overview

In a client host, the VHCI (Virtual Host Controller Interface) driver is implemented as a USB host controller driver. The VHCI driver emulates a real USB host controller interface for virtual attachment/detachment, enumeration and initialization of remote USB devices. It encapsulates USB request blocks and then transmits USB/IP requests to remote server hosts. In a server host, the Stub driver is implemented as a USB per-device driver. The Stub driver decapsulates USB/IP requests into USB requests and then submit them to real USB devices.

FAQ

  • 'client' and 'server' are confusing...
    A server host has physical USB devices which are exported to a client host. In the server host, load usbip_common_mod.ko and vhci-hcd.ko, and then use usbipd. The client host imports a USB device virtually; the client host may not have a real USB device. In the client host, load usbip_common_mod.ko and usbip.ko, and then use usbip.
  • USB/IP is stable?
    It basically works for most USB devices under LAN (Gb Ethernet is better). It has minimum features (e.g., attach/detach) and your contribution is welcome.
  • Is there a MS Windows client of USB/IP ?
    There is one now, it is in the early stage of development, you can try it. If it can't work for your USB devices, please report bug to us.
  • Does your USB/IP implementation have compatibility with other similar products?
    No, currently.

usbview

A remote USB webcam with an ov511 chip is virtually attached to a computer. We can see ov511 under USB VHCI Root Hub.

Desktop

xawtv is working for a remote USB webcam. A remote USB-HDD is also attached to the computer.

Linux

For Linux, the source code of usbip was merged into the staging tree, and finally has been moved to the mainline since Linux-3.17. Development is ongoing in the kernel community, not here. Linux distributions will provide binary packages of usbip. Just for historical records, the project page keeps old download files of the Linux version. Do not use them.

Windows

For Windows, the precompiled client-side program is available from the project page. You need a Linux machine for the server side.
